Rain gutter maintenance prevents stucco damage
Have you ever noticed stained or cracked stucco on the side of a house and wondered what caused it? Many times it’s caused by rain. Water and weather can do permanent damage to stucco, and repairing it can be expensive. Stucco damage can also allow water to seep into a building’s interior and cause further damage. Be on the lookout for stained stucco, cracks, and mold in your home. Fortunately, it’s preventable with proper downspouts and rain gutter maintenance. Rain gutters are supposed to divert water away from homes, but they can only work if they’re installed correctly and are free of leaves and other debris. You should check your rain gutters at least twice a year, in the spring and in the fall, and more often if you have tall trees. You’ll also want to make sure the rain gutters are free of leaks and holes. They should collect rain and melted snow and divert it away from the house.
In this case, a little prevention can go a long way to preventing unsightly and expensive damage to what is probably your biggest investment, your house. Ace Gutter can help.
